Steering stabilizer on newer coaches

I have a 2013 Palazzo. I have considered putting on a steering stabilizer. I am used to driving large trucks, but would like to improve the handling of the motor-home. My salesman told me that on newer coaches it would not change handling noticeably. Opinions?

If nothing else it would save the steering box from these lousy roads

I installed a Tru-Center on my 2012 Monaco and used it for about 6000 miles, then took it off. It will do absolutely nothing to improve handling, and in my opinion the additional steering effort it requires made it harder to drive. It was only beneficial when there were constant side winds or road camber on a straight road and the trim feature would assist in holding the steering wheel against it.

Kinda of a personal choice. I added Safe-T-Steer to my coach to help with bad roads and to stabilize the steering wheel when driving on the rough roads. An there are lots of rough highways out there. It was where I got so very tiring to fight the wheel mile after mile on bad roads. AN it helps. So of me...yes. Worth the cost. Oh an I hardly notice the very small extra effort needed to turn the wheels.

instead of like a true center type just the shock style stabilizer is what I would do..but to each there own.. I think they soften and hold better than none in side winds and ruts..my coach is a '97 with 95g for miles...jeff

Safe-T Plus is awesome! Serves both as a blowout safety system and a centering system. Really did the trick for me!
